    Are the contacts in the phone saved as phone or Google contacts?

    Did you log into your gmail account on a PC to verify your contacts are saved there? There may be no contacts there to sync with.

    ok, yeah, I have no contacts in Google at all. I have been syncing straight from Outlook, at least I was with my old Incredible 1. Does the Dinc2 have to go through my gmail account? if so, would you please link me to some instructions on how to sync my outlook with Google?

    thank you very much for you help.

    Sorry, I can't help you there. Hopefully someone will jump in to help with that.

    The Sync feature sync with the GMail contacts.
    The only thing I can think of is to export your Outlook contacts as a .CSV or vCard them import them into Gmail. After they are imported into GMail you should be able to sync.
